    The art does a pretty effective job when it comes to the delivery of Spider-Man's transformation as it looks decidedly horrific, which certainly helps one to accept it as a serious element of the plot. The art also manages to deliver a pretty powerful little exchange where Spider-Man makes a last ditch effort to take down the Queen, as her telekinetic ability makes for a powerful visual as Spider-Man is tossed about like a rag doll. However, the art is decidedly less impressive when it comes to its delivery of the talking heads scenes, as the enlarged chins that all the male character are saddled with are an unnecessary distraction. Still, Paco Medina is pretty solid when it comes to telling the story, as for the most part he has a pretty clear vision, and it's quite easy to follow the action on the page, which has been a bit of a reoccurring problem on this title.
